|Message||i think the social aspect has as much to do with if not more so than actual belief as to why so many remain involved with/in evangelical christianity, or any religion for that matter. most people are followers to whatever they percieve to be acceptable, beneficial and powerful. i honestly think it comes down to people wanting to remain conected to their cultural tradtions,their family and ancestors or be accepted by peers who for whatever reason they seek to be accepted and respected by. this even counts toward many so called atheists. many of these people especially the younger ones take on their atheism with a religious fervor that older more settled in religions lost centuries ago. and white people in general almost always want to be percieved as doing something worthwhile, something respectful to whatever peer group theyve deemed worthy, popular ... powerful in their own lil corners of the world in their day to day interactions. the few people who truly do not buy into or jump on bandwagons of beliefs or causes, or join parties, congrgations or groups no matter what they may be nor care about being accepted or respected by the plethora of societal clicks will be avoided by everyone and treated as lepers and weirdos. theyll be looked upon with suspicion. the masses will all join together in fearing and hating these outsiders. humans are social creatures though so tribes, clans, groups are natural. i can respect a true believer but not a follower.|
|Message||I stopped reading your article on the law of attraction the moment you mentioned that it creates a "victim-blaming" society. From that ridiculous comment I knew right from the start that you were just another wack job spouting off negativity to sway uneducated people into your own negative reality. If you knew the first thing about that which you speak of, you would know that utilizing this law CORRECTLY will create the opposite. When incorporating sujective reality one realizes that everything good or bad is actually their own fault. Everything you see happeing to others is not a result of their own intentions, but your own. You create this negativity. Everyone does. In order to properly subscribe to the collective consciousness theory you have got to understand that what others are experiencing, if it affects you whether it be because you have emotion directly involved in the incident or you are the one experiencing it, we are all a part of it. Everyone in your world is what you perceive them to be. Feeling love for those who you feel need ot most or feeling gratitude for what you enjoy in your life will never give you negative results. At the end you asked a bunch of ridiculous questions. That is proof positive that you simply DON'T KNOW what you are talking about. Questions that you don't know the snswer to are a far cry from an assurance that a system is flawed or untrue. I suggest you dig a little deeper before you decide to get on your computer and type your nonsense.|

|Message||You are 80% accurate in what you say...and it needs saying. However, the site would have more balance if it noted that out-of-step ("loser" women in the US also have a brutal time in the dating scene. Worse, they're often also exploited physically (I think lots of these women would LOVE better fishing waters abroad!). |
Also, I get(and like) that you're un-PC, but you should cut the snide references to different ethnic groups. You state you don't believe in being prejudiced, but then you extol a fan letter calling Chinese, Jews, British, and Japanese "cheap." Seriously? 1.5 billion cheap Chinese? This kind of stuff really undermines your credibility as someone offering thoughtful social critique.
|Message||This was a very insightful article.. I shared it on my Facebook page. I'm sure my nice but devout Christian friends will cry blasphemy |
With all this information out there, why..is Christianity still so popular?

Thanks for the great article. Gave me some new arguments against fundamentalistic justifications
Btw: Google made me laugh as it showed me a "Follow Jesus" ad at the bottom of the page
|Message||Hello,I have been a "so called Christian"since I was 19 yrs old.And when I prayed the prayer it dawned on me that the " so called word of God" had been in the hands of men long enough to be Corrupted! Then years later I found out that the Roman Catholic church plans things 500 Yes 500 years into the future!So go figure that one? Lol.And! They destroyed Alexandria Egypt,after the Roman army took the apostles writings,which that place you could have called a University of knowledge.All a person needed to do was learn to read & write in there home country,go to Alexandria and learn |
from other places in the world.
|Message||Great stuff! Love it! You're like a real savior; I am in the midst of a Pentecostal crazy family. Thanks.|
